Horizon Athletic’s new activewear collection is the dreamiest one you’ll see all day.
Mining inspiration from the varying contours of the body and the Earth’s natural landscapes, this collection refers to cartographic relief depiction techniques, including; contour lines, hypsometric tints, and relief shading. The term topography means the recording of relief or terrain, the three-dimensional quality of the surface, and the identification of specific landforms. When a garment is fitted perfectly against the natural contours of the body, the concept of topography is mirrored in the natural lines, shades and contours that perfectly follow the landscape of the body.
Topography collection is created in a tactile, soft fabric which follows the natural morphology of the contours of the body, offering maximal comfort and easy mobility.
The collection is available in three main colours: 'Soft Earth' - soft brown tones with a pale pink contrast, ‘River’ - light turquoise with mid-tone blue contrast, ‘Lava Stone’ - matt black with light silver-grey contrast.
Topography collection is made from 78% recycled polyester and 22% elastane, the fabrics are produced and sourced in Italy.
Each item is named after a Swiss glacier in order raise awareness of the on-going issue of glacial recession will have a huge impact on the natural environment. The collection features names such as ‘Alestch’ referring to the largest glacier in the Alps that has now been declared a UNESCO world heritage site. Other names are: Matterhorn, Rhône, Zinal, Arolla, Gauli, Saleina, Basòdino, Corbassière, Zmutt, Allalin, Silvretta, Vadret.
The Earth’s glaciers have been silently retreating for more than half a century as climate change marches on. There is no place on the planet — except south-east Asia — capable of withstanding the effects of a phenomenon that has melted more than 9.6 billion tonnes of glacial ice in the world since 1961. According to a 2019 satellite study by the University of Zurich (Switzerland), global warming threatens to evaporate over a third of all glaciers by 2100, according to the World Wildlife Fund.
